You know what I would love to see for Love Inspired Trade? A tearjerker friendship story in the vein of Beaches. Somebody send me that! #mswl

Oooh, I forgot to add! I'd really love a book set in the 00s or 90s. Probably a classic romcom, but I'd also be open to general women's fiction that was an exploration of friendships and what it meant to be a young woman at that time. Toxic relationships/terrible fashion etc!

I am DYING to find a diverse ensemble cast series that could comp shows like One Tree Hill, The O.C., or 90210 in my inbox.

Super specific #MSWL I know, but damn I loved those shows with their gossip, romance, friendship, and family.

Other specifics: friendship stories (or friendship breakup stories) and stories that bridge the gap between MG and YA. #mswl

I look forward to reading your submissions!

Always for me, characters are key, and there are few better characters than those in women's fiction! Bring me those friendships, those internal conflicts, the complications of being a human woman (a la the BARBIE movie). If there's a twist of some sort, so much the better! #MSWL

For thrillers, I love complicated family dynamics, twisted female friendships, and tense mother daughter relationships.
I like dual POV or time periods- think THE SUNDOWN MOTEL. Big fan of Lucy Foley and Wendy Walker. Would love to see more locked room thrillers as well.

I'm always on the look out for friendship stories and messy young women! #MSWL

On the YA side, this spans from NOTHING BURNS AS BRIGHT AS YOU to A LESSON IN VENGEANCE.

On the adult side, think QUEENIE or REALLY GOOD, ACTUALLY.

Contemporary #YA with a literary voice about ordinary teens dealing with life, family, relationships, friendships falling apart, sexuality, mental health, or recovery. A blend of genre and literary would be best of all.

5. When it comes to Upper MG, I enjoy adventures with pirates, witches, ghosts, animals that can communicate, an underlying moral lesson learned by the main character, strong friendships, and stories of courage, overcoming obstacles, or shining in the face of adversity.

2. Issue-driven: In either space, I love stories that drive off important concepts of mental health or other real-world issues (grief, divorce, friendships). I've lived these experiences and I wish I had books to read growing up that made me feel seen. We need them. (3/8)

Upmarket! Something commercial w/gorgeous writing, featuring people who are not okay bc sometimes we're not okay. I want to feel the spectrum of emotions. Break my 💔, tell me the story out of order or backward. Familial or friendship stories or just a strong cast of characters.
